Additional Financial Information

-The semester fee is halved for students who have completed the standard degree course requirements and have only the completion of their thesis remaining. Such students are required to be enrolled in a directed study on their thesis topic and to participate in a graduate or doctoral seminar each semester until graduation. In addition, they are eligible to take an elective course. For further information, see the Schedule of Fees.

-Due to current economic trends and escalating costs, it must be anticipated that the University of the Holy Land may be required to raise its fees annually, or at least intermittently. All fee adjustments are approached with the utmost consideration for the prospective student.

-All fees are payable in US dollars or Israeli shekels. Payment of fees is due each semester by the first day of class. All fees must be paid prior to enrollment in subsequent terms of study.

-We understand that situations beyond the student’s control can occasionally necessitate early withdrawal from UHL. In such an event, tuition fees will be refunded according to the table below. All refunds are contingent upon the student’s full compliance with official withdrawal procedures.
